Hi I am keen to get set up for Twitter on my XT mobile but have a few questions:

1. I know I can only associate one mobile number with one twitter account, but can I later change this without too much of a hassle? I would presume so but just want/need to check first before committing a mobile number to my account.

2. I have heard that Vodafone *may* have changed the rules so that sent TXT messages to TWTR are no longer included in "TXT bundles". Have the rules changed on XT?

3. What is updated to my phone? Is it all tweets or just DMs/@usernames?

4. Can I set up what hours of day I don't want to be sent TXT tweet updates? Like when I'm sleeping? :)

1. Yes you can change the number without a hassle by going into twitter then settings TAB.

3. You can choose who do you want the tweets from and you can also turn on/off sms updates when someone replies to the individual's tweet's.

4. Yes you can do that again by logging into twitter then settings, selecting the right time zone and what time you want to receive updates.

Do whatever you want to do man.

Might do this. Thanks.

So let me get this right - if I want, then I can get the updates made by everyone that I follow as per my "home" page on Twitter? As they update their pages?
